Message From The Academic Director
British Education Centre was established in 2007 as a school registered with the Ministry of Education, Singapore. Our academic standards are based primarily on the British education system and its national quality standards and we conform with the requirements of the Committee for Private Education Group, Singapore, the government regulatory body for private education institutions.
British Education Centre is registered as a Private Education Institution under the provisions and regulations of the Private Education Act 2009 in Singapore. The current registration period is valid for four years from 19 November 2016 to 18 November 2020. Registration number: 201113170W.
We provide a better experience. We are run by teachers for teachers and for our students. We believe that an overly financial ‘bottom-line’ oriented corporate approach should not unduly dominate a school to the detriment of the academic work. This is a successful approach and illustrates the fact that teachers are also managers and can be well capable of operating schools.We provide high quality teacher training and related English language training.
Our Academic Board and Examination Board help us to implement and maintain high standards.
We look forward to welcoming you and helping you to develop your future success in study, career and the wider community.
